Darawish Abul Gheit is led by Ahmed El Shankahawy, and presents a mixture of Sufi and Zār music with unique rhythms. The name, Abul Gheit, refers to Sheikh Hassan Al Ghitani, whose tomb is located in a small island in El Qaliyubia Governorate. Sheikh Abul Gheit was known for his Sufi Zikr nights and attracted many devoted dervishes and followers in the early 19th century. Abul Gheit dervishes had a repertoire of Sufi songs, many of which praise the qualities of their holy Sheikh. Over time, their songs fused with the Egyptian and Sudanese Zār musi which was practiced in the Arab El Mohamady area.
